The Modern Sunday School and Its Present l ay Task BY HENRY FREDERICK COPE NEW YORK CHICAGO TORONTO Fleming H.

When this book was first published, a little over eight years ago, it advocated many reforms which have now become accomplished facts. On the educational principles then laid down the school has been reorganised or at least the principles have been accepted and the newer methods accepted so that it is no longer necessary to treat them in a prophetic manner except to explain their elabo ration and intrication and to look forward to their further development. In addition so many new opportunities have opened up to the school and, as our social life has changed, some new duties have appeared before it. Perhaps the need for a thorough revision of a book on methods is the best evidence of the progress and increased efficiency of the Sunday school Chicago. CONTENTS CHAPTSSB I.

Men and women do well to study its history and its present activities, not alone, because such, study is prescribed as part of the preparation for service in the institution, but be cause the school has become one of the most Im portant forces in modern affairs, and particularly because to this school we must look, at least in large measure, for the solution of our great problem of religious education. It occupies a pre-eminent place as a character-forming institution in an age which Is slowly coming to recognise the supreme place of character and the regnancy of righteous ness. It owes Its place to two causes, the force of necessity on the one hand, and the fact that it is fitting itself to meet that necessity on the other. The force of necessity has been on the Sunday school as an agency for religious education because no other institution is doing this work to any gen eral extent to-day. Education has passed from a domestic to a civil duty, while the civil powers have decided, at least in the majority of the States, that 9 10 THE MODERN SUNDAY SCHOOL their institutions for education cannot include instruction in the Bibleor in religion in their curricula.
